How much does a shop normally charge for installing just the head piece? I could probably do it myself if it's too much.
For everything, you may be looking at $100. They look to rip you off. I did mine myself but then again I know a little about wiring. It's really easy as long as you know what you are doing. Don't cut any wires; just buy the harness/adapters ($30 total). Watch a couple of videos on youtube and you'll be done within an hour. The hardest part is just taking your dashboard off for the HU and the door panels off (if required) for the speakers.

In 4 1 for the ranch truck.
Wonder how sensitive the AM reception is - the ability is going downhill fast on car receivers.

for the same price minus the speakers
this unit certainly seems better
HERE [walmart.com]
It looks like they are the same unit according to Kenwood's website.

It looks like the bundle includes KDC-108 which is a 2010 model. KDC-152 is a newer one. Doesn't see much difference though.

Pretty good deal if you just want a Radio and CD Player, and only use the 3.5mm audio jack for an MP3 player or something.

Most head units these days have USB inputs for USB drives with MP3s though, which is why these CD-only models are going to be cheap as long as they last.

As for installing, definitely spend the money and buy a Scosche/Metra brand wiring harness plug to just connect to the factory wiring without cutting anything. Beware of paying install shops unless you talk to them and they confirm they DO use a wiring harness and they show you the one they're going to use. You could be paying money to have them cut off the factory radio harness and make a complete mess of the wiring in the vehicle otherwise. Plenty of high-end stereo shops still do business this way, beware.

I'm not quite sure how much they charge but it is very simple to do yourself. Save the money and learn!
Not if your car has a built-in amp, individual amps on the stock speakers, has more than four speakers, or generally any newer German car.

WTF is wrong with walmart website, I have tried 3 different credit cards and they keep declining
"Thank you for shopping with Walmart.com. Unfortunately, due to an error processing payment information, we have had to cancel the following order."
These are good cards,

Anyone else having issues

EDIT: I think I know what is going on, could Walmart have blacklisted my name, address or cards? During Christmas purchases I inadvertently sent a bike I bought to an old address, I caught my mistake literally minutes after placing the order and called Walmart to fix the order, the rep suggested I cancel the order because due to safety/fgraud they were unable to change the delivery address which I totally understood, the rep gladly cancelled the order and I promptly reordered the bike and all was well, so I thought

A few weeks ago I noticed that I was never credited for the original bike that I canceled so I tracked both orders and I had recieved one and the old address had also recieved on, Walmart never cancelled the first order
So I called Walmart to check, this rep now informed me that once an order has been placed online that it CANNOT be cancelled and that my order was never cancelled and I had to go to my old address to hope and get the package and then send it back, I told them BS and it was not my fault, so I called my CC company and requested a charge back

I have tried 3 different CC's and my debit card and even my Paypal and they have refused all methods of payment WTF

To anybody still using solder and heat shrink tubing on car stereo installations, it's time to move on to http://www.crutchfield.com/p_669P...ctors.html

I've used these in 3 installs so far and they work flawlessly, and save you time and effort. The hold is strong, give it a few solid tugs if you don't believe me Smilie

22W RMS, good power. Kenwood is a great audio manufacturer to boot.

Take my advice from someone whos been there. GET A VEHICLE SPECIFIC WIRING HARNESS ADAPTER!!! This will allow you to add the aftermarket head unit without destroying/cutting into your existing wiring harness.

It's a really easy (and rewarding) afternoon project to install your own car stereo. Unless you have a "premium audio" option on your car, odds are even a simple head unit like this one will sound excellent.
yup! Dont cut factory wires like and idiot and dont use twister for wiring. Like he said buy your self a harness and solder the connection. The hardest part you probably come across is mounting the stereo into your mounting bracket in the car because every car is different and you might have to mod it a little bit.

Those look nice, I wonder if they make a heavy duty model for home wiring. Twist connectors work ok, but I don't trust them over the long haul.

EDIT: Yes they do: http://www.posi-lock.com/

Soldering has been used for years and it will still be used long after that posi connector product has been discontinued and forgotten. Why? Because soldering is permanent, will never come loose (unless the wires themselves break in which case you have bigger problems), and makes for a much better electrical connection than twisting wires together. The last point is especially important for applications like this where any noise introduced can be picked up by your speakers and then you'll be sitting there scratching your head why your audio sounds like crap. Do it once and do it right.
